Sounds like your chickens are molting, so no egg production during the molt usually, they should resume laying again after the daylight starts increasing again, mine usually start around February.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
